“The quality of life is based on the authencity of your connections”
On the reals though, I honestly do not believe in coincidence. I believe that everything that happens in your life is part of a plan, a plan that’s meant to grow you as a person and to build your character.
I believe that Life is full circle and that Everything we go through, every person that we meet, is a test and a lesson. How we pass those tests and learn those lessons determine how we spend the days to come.
Treat everybody you encounter with respect. It really doesn’t cost you anything to just be nice because you really don’t know when you might need that very same “irrelevant” person. God and Murphy have a way sometimes!
Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying be nice JUST to or in hope of getting something in return, but I am saying generally, what you put in, is what you get out.
So here’s a thought:
If we had to receive whatever we gave…. wouldn’t we make sure that we give off our best at all times? Well then touche’.
So no, we not saying be fake, if you really don’t like somebody and you’re meant to encounter them, perhaps it’s a reminder of how not to be. Just keep your distance, respectfully , and then keep moving forward.
So the next time you get a friendly smile from a stranger, return it. The next time some random person on social media needs help, offer to help if you’re able. The next time you see a wet floor at work, go around it (we see all of you who have no regard for the cleaning staff). The next time you see an elderly person standing and you’re seated, offer your seat, the next time you go to a super market, remember, the cashier did nothing to you and neither is she obliged to smile at ya, stop feeling entitled. And the next time you witness something wrong or an injustice, speak up and stand for what’s right. This is what being authentic is all about.
The world needs your sparkle.
Some say chivalry isn’t dead and I believe them.
